About me

I am Associate Professor in the Department of History at the University of British Columbia, where I study the social and cultural history of the Caribbean. My research considers the creation of media circuits in the early 20th century with particular attention to imperial dynamics and changing political practices. I ask about the relevance of sound and listening to modes of affiliation and belonging. I take up these questions in several research projects.

Recently, I contributed to the sound studies blog, Sounding Out!

Violent Circuits, Contentious Voices: Caribbean Radio Histories

I teach courses in Caribbean, Latin American and Cuban History, historical theory and method, race in the Americas, and media histories. For more information on my courses click here.
